Blue Bamboo says that its Pocket POS suite of mobile payment applications has been listed in the AT&T Certified Solutions Catalog.
The PocketPOS mobile merchant solution includes a Bluetooth enabled P25-M printer, card reader (all in one), featuring Master Key/Session Key and DUKPT security protocols and a secure wireless payment application to quickly process credit card, cash and check transactions and print receipts using a mobile handset, PDA or laptop.
AT&T certification establishes an independently verified evaluation of quality, and it indicates Blue Bamboo and PocketPOS have met the standards of a major mobile carrier. The certification attests to the reliability and security of PocketPOS, and confirms that the application will not install spyware or viruses.
The suite of applications are Java-based applets that run on P25-M printer and mobile handsets, enabling mobile merchants to reduce fraud and loss from mobile sales by using a phone or PDA to accept and verify credit card and check guarantee transactions.
Savings of between 30 – 70 % in transaction fees are achieved by processing at swiped retail rates and reducing charge backs by having signed receipts for every sale. Mobile merchants can now leverage their investment in communications equipment by adding more revenue generating features to mobile phones.
